  • Hydrosurge with conditioners?

    I recently started at a new salon and they have a hydrosurge. Yay!! But I don't believe the bathers are using it properly.
    At my old shop we had a prima to apply shampoo, rinse and then use conditioner from the bottles. When I started at the new place they were putting the shampoo and conditioner in the water and sending them both through the system at the same time. I didn't see how the dogs would be cleaned or conditioned properly, so I told them to do it separately. Shampoo, rinse, conditioner, rinse.
    How do y'all use it?

    I use a bathing beauty. I shampoo, add a squirt of vinegar, rinse, then run conditioner through, then quick rinse (I don't use any heavy conditioners).

      I use only shampoo with my bathing beauty. I condition straight from the bottle and apply with my hands or a zoom groom. Most conditioners can't really be diluted anyway.

        Vivilee, have not seen ya around in awhile....

        I love your avatar. I use conditioner thru hydro-surge and many times just squirt dirctly onto coat. I find with Bichons, the hydro-surge gets in into coat evenly and you don't waste it. That tropliclean de mat is expensive.

          We apply conditioner with the hydrosurge but we always shampoo, rinse, then condition. The conditioner is on a separate pump. We dilute the conditioner before we run it through the system.

            I don't really see a problem with this method, would it not be similar to the "shampoo plus conditioner" products we buy for ourselves?
